Just theoretical question that i need some answers to. If i shot 720/60p and bring the footage into FCP, do i have to do anything for it to play in slow-mo on the 24p timeline? IF so what do i do?

Yes, you need to do something. There are actually two things you can do - one is the "proper" way, but the other is much quicker. The proper way (assuming you recorded DVCPROHD and not AVCi) is to use the frame rate converter plugin on the footage to convert it to 23.98 (or 29.97).

The faster way (because it requires no render) - plus the only way that will work with AVCi footage - is to open the clip in Cinema Tools and conform it to the frame rate you want. (You'll have to reimport it into FCP afterwards).

Thanks Jesse! I was wondering if you could shed some light as we are having problems converting the 59.94p footage into slow mo. I write about it in this thread:

The HPX2000 does not support variable frame rate workflows.

Open your clip in Cinema Tools and hit the conform button and select 23.98. This will essentially playback your 60p content @ 24p.

i should add that you should duplicate this clip to keep any necessary information in tact.
